Sail-World.com : 'Letters from the Caribbean' - Treleavens' new book

'Letters from the Caribbean' - Treleavens' new book

For years now, Sail-World has been publishing the serialised story of Ian and Andrea Treleaven, who cruised, first the Med and then the Caribbean, sending back 'Letters' telling of their adventures. After the success of their first book, 'Letters from the Med', they have now released a second, 'Letters from the Caribbean'.

In the new book the New Zealander cruising sailors again share travel-tales from their two-season journey sailing around the Caribbean. It is a full colour production with magnificent sailing and shore photos, excellently presented, as was the first book. It's ideal for a birthday or other Important Day gift, and is on sale now.

After their four seasons in the Med, the Treleavens thought it was time for 'new pastures'. So, with a brand new yacht, Cape Finisterre, they kick-started their new adventure with the annual two-week Atlantic Race for Cruisers, starting off with Spain and Morocco and finishing in St Lucia.

Treleavens -  .. .  
In Letters from the Caribbean, the Treleavens take us on a truly enviable journey through Antigua and Grenada, to the Virgin Islands and Cuba, soaking up every bit of culture when stepping onto the shore… From Le Grand Carnival in Martinique, champagne and sailing during the Antigua Classic Race Week, through to seeing the Southern Cross in the night sky on the sail from Cuba to Grand Cayman Island.

As a compilation of beautiful personal photographs, notes and letters home, the book is a travel memoir of a bejewelled turquoise paradise. With sections of delicious local recipes and cocktails adapted to be cooked and sampled from the boat (or at home!) as well as essential food lists, Letters from the Caribbean is also a must-have to take on board.

For those seriously contemplating a trip like the Treleavens, in the Caribbean or elsewhere, Ian’s tried and tested practical sailing tips throughout the book may prove handy for both skippers and navigators.

About the authors:
Before embarking on this idyllic life, Ian and Andrea owned a nautical clothing business in New Zealand. They moved to Australia where they gradually expanded the operation. In 2003 they sold the business, and they continue to live in Sydney when they are not cruising.
